Kurk, I had one of the Beaver striper guides ask me about the shad transporting.They get a lot of there shad from Grand. If they get bait from Grand can they transport it to Beaver? I know for us we can't use it in a Oklahoma lake, but what about taking it to a out of state lake? I would think the Ark. fish and game would have something to say about it. I'm just curious.

Dave already asked that question of ODWC LEO - I was told anyone who leaves the water in a vehicle towing a boat with live caught bait, taken from barred waters was subject to being forced to dump and kill that bait as well as a possible fine. If you catch bait in Grand its best you don't leave one ramp , to trailer to another one, if you did to be legal you would have to dump any unused bait, then recatch bait when you are on the water again.

If you BUY bait you must save the receipt as proof.

This applies to all Licensed fishermen.


Now there are gonna be some for sure court cases on this poorly thought out stuff - ordinarily an officer must see you netting bait to make any such case, you could say you brought bait from an uninfected system - and who is to say different?The devil is always in the details

Dave, I know those striper guides and others from AR who get OK shad will be impacted by the new regs. The way the law reads, any angler leaving ANS-infected waters with bait is subject to fine. I would recommend those AR boys not take the chance and try to get shad in AR waters...a non-resident caught leaving Grand with bait would be a very likely target of law enforcemnt on this issue. If it were me, I would not take the chance.

I just finished a regional fish meeting this weekend which included many AR Fish & Game biologists and administrators. They do NOT want their anglers bringing ANS from OK believe me.

Well Kuk - did Arkansas Fish and Game perform a mea culpa to everyone for the Silver carp invasion?

First reported importation the United States was in 1973 by a fish farmer in Arkansas to control the level of phytoplankton in rearing ponds as well as to provide a food fish. By the end of the 1970’s the state of Arkansas, along with federal and private aquaculture facilities and even municipal sewage lagoons had been stocked with silver carp.

US fish and game biologists sounded the warning early , but by then it was too late

Why in the WORLD do ya'll still even allow grass carp? They are becoming numerous in Keystone now - and these dang sure ain't sterile either !!!!!

All too little too late
